S3E4 – Jen Bromley


Dr Jen Bromley, Head of Client Research and Development at Vertical Future, gives us an inside look at one of the newest movements in agriculture – vertical farming. 

In this episode of the Plant Breeding Stories podcast, Jen describes how her early breeding work with potatoes and tobacco eventually led to her current role leading R&D efforts at Vertical Future. She explains how breeding objectives change for plants grown indoors in a controlled environment compared to traditionally grown field crops. We also learn about some of the ways that vertical agriculture can benefit consumers – from supplying more nutritious produce that is locally grown, to reducing supply chain disruptions.
